What a busy week I've had and not as many cards made as I would have liked. It has also been a great week for me as I won 2 challenges and what fantastic prizes they were. Elaine of Quixotic Cards, a great shop, had generously donated a £10 voucher to the Cupcake Challenge, which I had great pleasure in spending today. Today I found I have won a set of label nesties of my choice from Stamp Something. Another generous sponsor, Christian Papercrafts. Thanks so much for these great prizes. I decided to spoil myself and order 6 of the new Promarkers as Secret Crafter now offer free p&p. There are so many lovely new colours it as hard to choose but 3 pinks and 3 purples will be coming my way. There just weren't enough of these colours in the original set. I've been very lucky with the prizes and candy I have won since I started 3 months ago so there will be candy on offer sometime next month so spread the word and if you're not already one of my lovely followers now would be a good time to become one.
Well on to today's card. Finally got round to doing the Winter Wonderland challenge of Frosty the Snowman. I just love snowmen and snowflakes on cards. The fab sketch is from Mojo Monday. I decided to go with something different and used the colour challenge of pumpkin, cocoa and ruby from Color Throwdown. This was a challenge as most Christmas papers aren't orange and brown. Apart from the strip of Christmas papers the others were all from my non Christmas stash. The stamp is Pink Gem coloured with PMs. I decided to add some red flowers and bronze roses both of which I bought in local shops over the last 2 weeks. This week's challenge at Stamp Something is to use your favourite embellishments. Well, mine is definitely flowers of any shape, size and colour.
A busy weekend ahead but I am having a facial and back massage tomorrow so should be nice and relaxed and will hopefully find a little time for crafting on Sunday. Hope you all have a great weekend and the weather is good for you.
